IMPORTANT FACTS 

RICHARDSON" Boilers are rated 
according to accurate standards 
and upon the assumption that sufficient 
radiation will be used, the piping system 
properly arranged and the boiler connected 
to a flue of ample capacity and good draft. 
With steam at 2 lbs. boiler pressure and with 
hot water at a temperature of 180° Fahrenheit. 

Our ratings provide. that all piping (mains, 
risers and returns), in addition to the direct 
radiation to be used, shall be figured as 
radiating surface in estimating the size of 
boiler necessary. One size larger boiler for 
reserve power is best used. 

For indirect radiation add 75 per cent, to 
surface for such radiation, and where pipe 
radiation surface is used, add 25 per cent, for 
same to equal the usual amount direct 
radiation. 

When a pipe coil or cast-iron section is 
placed in the fircpot for heating water for 
domestic uses, additional capacity must be 
figured at the rate of 1^ square feet of direct 
radiation for a steam boiler and 2^ square 
feet of direct radiation for a hot-water boiler, 
for each gallon of water to be heated per hour. 



"RICHARDSON" Boilers are tapped for 
coils to be placed in the firebox for heating 
water. Front section of side feed boilers 
should not be so used. 

Do not bush outlets on boilers; connect 
all of them full size to the mains. 

To secure best results boilers should be 
covered with Asbestos cement. 



GUARANTEE 

Every "RICHARDSON" Boiler is sold 
under a guarantee as to its perfection in 
manufacture, and its ability to carry the 
rating shown in our printed matter, provided 
that a sufficient amount of radiation is in- 
stalled, the piping system properly run, and 
the boiler connected to a flue of sufficient 
size and draft for the size of the fire box. 



COAL 

"RICHARDSON" Boilers can be furnished 
with grates to burn the small sizes of coal 
when so ordered. 

When soft coal is used for fuel, increase 
boiler one size. 



''RICHARDSON" 

Round Sectional Steam and Water 
Boilers 




OICHARDSON" Round Boilers were designed to 
*^ furnish a boiler adapted for small buildings and 
private residences, one that would be simple and 
easy to operate, powerful, yet economical. How 
well these results have been attained is shown by 
the many thousands in actual use. Their opera- 
tion is most simple, and requires no practical knowl- 
edge. They have large feed doors for supplying fuel 
to the fire, and ample cleanout and ash-pit doors, 
and will carry sufficient fire all night to insure a 
warm house in early mornings.

RICHARDSON 

Round Sectional Steam and Water 
Boilers 




A LL house owners are anxious to install a boiler 
^^ that will generate the most heat with the least 
expense for fuel and with as little attention as 
possible. This is accomplished with the ''RICH- 
ARDSON" Boilers. The deep fire chamber with 
corrugated sides will carry fire and generate heat a 
long time without attention. Over the fire is a large 
amount of active heating surface, properly propor- 
tioned for the rating of the boiler. This surface 
being backed by water, the full heat from the fire 
is utilized and the water quickly raised to a high 
temperature.

Method for establishing Ratings 

When load attached to boiler consists of direct radiation installed in a 
residence for 70 degrees, the heat-condensing power of the radiation and 
piping combined, rarely exceeds 0.25 (>i) lbs. of steam per sq. ft. per hour. 
The capacity of the Richardson Boilers as indicated in the following table 
is figured on this basis. 

If load attached to boiler has a condensing power exceeding 0.25, such 
as occurs in factories and other buildings heated to a low temperature, or in 
which is used radiating surface having a greater condensing power, the factor 
representing the increased condensation, should be used. 

To convert line E to B.t.u., multiply by 970. When the hourly heat 
energy is expressed in terms of B.t.u., divide same by 250 for steam, or 150 
for water. 

If A is burned in 8 hours, divide E by 8 x 0.25 to obtain the capacity at 

that rate. If A is burned in 6 hours, divide E by 6 x 0.25 for that capacity.

TNTERIOR view of the "RICHARDSON" Round 
A Boiler, showing corrugated inside surface of fire- 
pot, high combustion chamber and deep fire to per- 
mit of a low rate of combustion, and attendance at 
long intervals. The firepot section is provided with 
two openings in the back for inserting a coil in the 
fire for heating water for domestic purposes. The 
dome, or top section, adds greatly to the efficiency 
and economy of these boilers on account of the large 
surfaces in contact with the heated gases.

"RICHARDSON" 

Sectional Safety Steam and Water 
Boilers 

21 Series— End Feed 




Can be furnished with Double Feed Doors for Wood Fuel 



THESE Boilers, designed for heating houses and 
small buildings, present to the direct rays of 
the fire a very large percentage of heating surface, 
yet with a long fire travel to hold back the gases and 
prevent their too-rapid escape to the smoke outlet. 
Direct surface is necessary to raise steam quickly or 
to heat water with economy of fuel. The "RICH- 
ARDSON" Boilers have deep fire pots and high 
combustion chambers. Grates can be furnished fcr 
burning large or small sizes of coal, as may be desired.

Method for establishing Ratings 

When load attached to boiler consists of direct radiation installed in a 
residence for 70 degrees, the heat-condensing power of the radiation and 
piping combined, rarely exceeds 0.25 { l /i) lbs. of steam per sq. ft. per hour. 
The capacity of the Richardson Boilers as indicated in the following table 
is figured on this basis. 

If load attached to boiler has a condensing power exceeding 0.25, such 
as occurs in factories and other buildings heated to a low temperature, or in 
which is used radiating surface having a greater condensing power, the factor 
representing the increased condensation, should be used. 

To convert line E to B.t.u., multiply by 970. When the hourly heat 
energy is expressed in terms of B.t.u., divide same by 250 for steam, or 150

"RICHARDSON" 

Sectional Safety Steam and Water Boilers 

25 Series — End Feed 




Can be furnished with Double Feed Doors for Wood Fuel 



T^HE principal consideration in a boiler is the ease 
with which it can be operated — its ability to do 
the work for long periods — and its economic features. 
The proportion of grate area to do the work re- 
quired to be done, large fire chamber and combustion 
space, together with effective direct fire surface, with 
large flues admitting of a low rate of combustion, 
all tend to make the economic boiler. These are 
fully realized in the "RICHARDSON" Boilers.

Method for establishing Ratings 

When load attached to boiler consists of direct radiation installed in a 
residence for 70 degrees, the heat -condensing power of the radiation and 
piping combined, rarely exceeds 0.25 0|) lbs, of steam per sq. ft. per hour. 
The capacity of the "RICHARDSON" Boilers, as indicated in the following 
table, is figured on this basis. 

If load attached to boiler has a condensing power exceeding 0.25, such as 
occurs in factories and other buildings heated to a low temperature, or in 
which is used radiating surface having a greater condensing power, the fac- 
tor representing the increased condensation should be used. 

To convert line E to B. t. u., multiply by 970. When the hourly heat 
energy is expressed in terms of B. t. u., divide same by 250 for steam, or 150 
for water. 

If A is burned in eight hours, divide E by 8x0.25 to obtain the capacity 
at that rate. If A is burned in 6 hours, divide E by 6x0.25 for that capacity.

"RICHARDSON" 

Sectional Safety Steam and Water Boilers 

18 Series 




4 and 5 Section Boilers have only one Feed Door. 



pRACTICALLY all boiler manufacturers state in 
their catalogues that one foot of fire surface is 
equal in heating power to four feet of flue surface. 
This is an emphatic endorsement of "RICHARD- 
SON" Boilers. These boilers have over 75 per cent 
direct fire surface on which the light of the fire 
shines. To boil water, it is placed directly over the 
fire, that is the reason "RICHARDSON" Boilers will

Method for establishing Ratings 

When load attached to boiler consists of direct radiation installed in a 
residence for 70 degrees, the heat-condensing power of the radiation and 
piping combined, rarely exceeds 0.25 (34) lbs, of steam per sq. ft. per hour. 
The capacity of the Richardson Boilers as indicated in the following table 
is figured on this basis. 

If load attached to boiler has a condensing power exceeding 0.25, such 
as occurs in factories and other buildings heated to a low temperature, or in 
which is used radiating surface having a greater condensing power, the factor 
representing the increased condensation, should be used. 

To convert line E to B.t.u., multiply by 970. When the hourly heat 
energy is expressed in terms of B.t.u., divide same by 250 for steam, or 150 
for water. 

If A is burned in 8 hours, divide E by 8 x 0.25 to obtain the capacity at 
that rate. If A is burned in 6 hours, divide E by 6 x 0.25 for that capacity.

"RICHARDSON" 

Sectional Steam and Water Boilers 

22 Series 




4 and 5 Section Boilers have only one Feed Door. 

OICHARDSON Boilers are so constructed as to 
v present to the fire a large percentage of direct 
heating surface. This surface being entirely backed 
by water, in thin, shallow bodies, circulates rapidly 
and quickly absorbs the heat units given off by 
the fire. But the true value of a boiler depends not 
alone on the amount of heating surface, but the 
proper proportions between grate surface and heating 
surface, yet with sufficient fire travel, to hold the 
products of combustion long enough to thoroughly 
extract all possible heat from the coal consumed.

Sectional Safety Steam and Water Boilers 



30 Series 




4 and 5 Section Boilers have only one Feed Door. 



pHE value of heating surface depends upon it* 
location. The heating surfaces in these boilers 
are directly over and surrounding the fire where it feels 
the first effect of the heat; hence their great power 
and economy. On larger boilers of 6, 7 and 8 sec- 
tions, double feed and ash-pit doors are provided 
so that every part of the fire is accessible for atten- 
tion, making it easy to put on coal and remove 
the ashes.

"RICHARDSON" 
TANK HEATER 

RATINGS 

The capacities in gallons shown for the different 
styles of hot water Tank Heaters indicate the size 
of storage tank to which heater should be connected 
for ordinary domestic supply systems; and heaters 
have the capacity to impart from 25 to 40 degrees 
of heat per hour to the water, which fulfills the 
requirements of such systems. 

Where a specific quantity of water is required to 
be raised to a certain number of degrees per hour 
for special purposes, the boiler capacity required 
must be figured as follows: 

Multiply the number of gallons to be heated per 
hour by %\i lbs., which is the weight of one gallon 
of water, and this result by the number of degrees 
temperature water is to be raised; divide this result 
by 8,000 (the heat units utilized from one pound of 
fuel), and the result will be the number of pounds 
of coal which must be burned per hour; this divided 
by the rate of combustion at which the boiler is to 
be run, will give the square feet of grate required. 
Example: What size boiler will be required to heat 
a swimming pool containing 2,000 gallons from 40 
to 70 degrees in 4 hours? 2,000 gallons to be heated 
in 4 hours is equal to 500 gallons per hour. 500 
multiplied by 8^ equals'4,170 lbs. of water which, 
multiplied by 30 (which is the number of degrees 
the water is to be raised), equals 125,100 heat units 
required to raise 500 gallons of water 30 degrees in 
one hour. As 8,000 units is the value which can 
be utilized from one pound of fuel, 125,100 divided 
by 8,000 B. T. U. equals 16, which is the pounds of 
coal to be burned per hour, and burning 6 pounds 
of coal per square foot of grate would require a 
heater with 2% square feet of grate surface. 
Important 
When water heaters are subject to an unusual 
pressure or when the pressure is increased in the 
night, or during fires, it is necessary to provide the 
system with a water pressure-reducing valve.
